If you do not want to pay for two seperate transport rides (350 HUF each ride/ticket), you can buy a Transfer Ticket (530 HUF) valid for two rides between metro trains, buses, trams and so on.
Your first trip is valid for 100 minutes and your second trip (the transfer) is valid for 80 minutes, but your transfer must be taken within the first 100 minutes. See the BKK Transport T&Cs.
This 24 Hour travel pass is valid on the metro, tram, trolley bus, bus and boat in and around Budapest city centre.Daily Travel Pass
It is ideal for visiting residential areas as well as tourist areas.
Below you will find details of the red Trolley Bus lines (routes) that run within Budapest, together with some main bus stop names that may be of interest to a tourist, student, someone living in Budapest (off/on) and/or someone thinking of buying a property in Budapest.
On other web pages throughout this website I have given actual time recordings in terms of how long it takes to get from the city centre to a tourist landmark for example, going via metro, tram, bus, bicycle, foot or a combination of these modes of transport. Those time recordings will give you an accurate timescale of how long it will take to get from A to B.
Budapest currently has 15 red coloured Trolley Bus (electric cable) lines, that operate in Pest only, with the first line starting from number 70 upwards. Apparently, 70 was chosen as the starting number because the first lines began operating when communist leader Stalin was 70 years old (in December 1949); even though some say he was born in 1878 and not 1879!

Anyway, as trolley bus lines cater for residents and workers, and not really for tourists, only line 70 will be of use to a tourist. It route runs from Kossuth Lajos Tér (in front of the Parliament building) to Heroes Square via Andrassy Út.

BKK normally update their timetables twice a year (around April and November), hence why I update the timetables listed on this web page accordingly. If the above trolley bus pdf files have been updated by BKK whereby the above links no longer work, you should visit the BKK Public Transport RoutesPublic Transport Timetables web page.
TIP: If you are going to buy a 24 Hour travel pass, get one from a railway station as it will be a printed version (as shown in the right column above) - You just show it to metro staff or bus drivers instead of inserting it into an orange ticket-validation machine each time. I saw so many people miss their metro train due to time wasted validating their ticket in the machine.
